3x3 Basketball Tournaments • Competencias de Baloncesto 3x3

3x3 - Amsterdam becomes 3x3 capital of Netherlands

The Netherlands Basketball Federation (NBB) takes 3x3 basketball very seriously. This is best demonstrated by the fact that, since 2009 they have organised tournaments all over the country.

Last weekend, Amsterdam was the proud host of the Streetball Masters event. A total of 70 teams took to the court to battle for two spots at the Streetball Master Final in The Hague on 5 August.

The two qualifying teams were 'JR 4 Ball' and 'Team Heat', who believe in their chances of succeeding.

The winner will automatically qualify for the Amsterdam challenger and eye the Madrid 3x3 World Tour Masters in early September.

The promoters are very enthusiastic about organising another major 3x3 event in Amsterdam.

"We have very nice equipment and are located in the middle of the city', said Simone van den Biggelaar, a Streetball Masters employee.

When asked what the main challenge was, Simone responded: "Switching to FIBA's 3x3 rules required some adjustments for players who weren't used to playing with these rules. "

Last year, the NBB sent a boys and girls' team to the inaugural FIBA 3x3 Youth World Championship.

This year the Federation will send a women's and girls' team to both the FIBA 3x3 World Championship and FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championship.

"Our Federation strongly supports the development of 3x3 and we are eager to send teams to international tournaments, "Simone announced.

It promises to be an eventful summer for the ever-growing streetball nation.

3x3 - Lithuania season in full motion

Basketball is hands down considered as the national sport in Lithuania and 3x3 is added proof of to that known fact.

"Most people play basketball in Lithuania, "pointed out Linas Stankevicius, Snickers-Virus manager. He has been heavily involved with 3x3 over the years and continues to take Snickers-Virus to new heights.

The 3x3 Snickers-Virus Quest tournament was under way in the capital city of Vilnius early this month.

There was an amazing 146 teams that participated over five different age categories.

"Basketball in Lithuania is like a religion, "exclaimed Stankevicius. The country has had a long and lasting interest for 3x3 basketball and this is just the beginning of many future events.

"3x3 basketball has been played here for the past 15 years so this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone, "explained Linas.

The overall feedback was very good from the players and also from the spectators. Prizes were handed out but most importantly the players were more than ever motivated to win.

Only one side came out on top and that was team 'Panevezio balsas' which was composed of Tomas Taucius, Danas Magila, Laurynas Kochnauskas, Linas Kivyta.

They will have a chance to battle for the only open spot at the September 3x3 Istanbul World Tour event at a 3x3 Quest tour final in Palanga, Lithuania later this month.

FIBA Asia - Mid-Term Congress
and 3x3 Seminar outline new vision for Asian basketball

The FIBA Asia Mid-Term Congress drew to a close on Monday seeing FIBA Asia unveil a Vision Document, outlining the organisation's philosophy and objectives for the development of basketball on the Asian continent.

With a strong emphasis on unity and solidarity, the document also includes more concrete objectives such as making basketball the number one sport in Asia as well as securing the continent's first podium finishes at the Olympics and FIBA Basketball World Cup, as of 2020.

The Congress followed a two-day seminar on 3x3 basketball attended by a large number of FIBA Asia officials and commission members as well as sub-zone representatives and included several presentations and a workshop, ending with a unanimous commitment to promote the new discipline.

Finally, the Mid-Term Congress saw the nomination of Dato’ Yeoh Choo Hock as FIBA Asia Secretary General Emeritus, following his stepping down from the position of Secretary General last month for health reasons.

In an emotional acceptance speech, Dato’ Yeoh said: "Basketball has been my religion all my life.

"I thank this gathering for your magnanimity to allow me to continue my involvement with this great sport as Secretary General-Emeritus.

"I do strongly believe that Hagop Khajirian, the new FIBA Asia Secretary General, is a man of great vision and ambition. I call upon of each one of you to provide him with the same, and times more, support as you always have."

FIBA President Yvan Mainini, also in attendance, paid tribute to the huge contributions to Asian and world basketball made by Dato’ Yeoh Choo Hock in his more than 30 years of involvement with the sport. Following the end of the Mid-Term Congress.

He said: "FIBA Asia's new vision, its enthusiasm to embrace the 3x3 project and, of course, the appointment of Hagop Khajirian as Secretary General of FIBA Asia have coincided to mark a new chapter in the history of Asian basketball. These projects can build on solid foundations, including those laid by Dato’ Yeoh. We all look forward to Asian basketball fulfilling its huge potential."

3x3 Basketball Tournaments • Competencias de Baloncesto 3x3

FIBA 3x3 - A supplement and complement, not a replacement

The father of Modern Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, once said: "In order for 100 people to develop their bodies it is necessary for 50 to practice a sport, and in order for 50 to practice a sport it is necessary for 20 to specialise; but in order for 20 to specialise it is necessary for 5 to be capable of outstanding achievement."

This quote has gone on to become famously known as the Coubertin Pyramid, which when drawn as a parallel is exactly what FIBA 3x3 aims to achieve with the emphasis here on widening the base of players taking to the sport.

Participants at last week’s FIBA Asia 3x3 seminar laid out the plan for development and promotion of this latest initiative to take the sport to every nook and corner.

Nepal’s initiative and ideas stand as an example for FIBA 3x3’s targets and goals.

"In a small country like ours, we definitely lack the infrastructure and facilities to play the traditional format of the game. The 3x3 is a shot in the arm for us,” says Nepal Basketball Association (NeBA) Secretary General Dinesh Thapa.

"We are already planning for a World Tour kind of an event in and around Kathmandu.

"We are planning a three-leg event with teams playing in the three Durbar Squares – in Kathmandu, Pathan and Bhaktapur," he added.

For the uninitiated, these Durbar Squares that Thapa refers to are courtyards of erstwhile palaces and are, to describe in modest terms, sprawling.

There are concerns among the purists if 3x3 will become a convenient way out for youngsters to skirt around the rigours of training for the traditional format.

Fadi Sabbah, a long-time administrator known for his erudite analysis of the game, countered such doubts and even allayed any fears.

"Well, doubts being raised when something new is launched is normal,” the Jordanian administrator says.

"But there is no need for any fears as long as we have a strong commitment to use the 3x3 as a supplement and complement.

"The key here is for administrators and coaches to be dedicated and look at 3x3 as a feeder route," he went on.

"Look, there are numerous occasions when a 3x3 situation occurs in all games. Even in training we use a lot of drills which are essentially 3x3. Now that we have the format being played on the competition level, I think it makes the job of the coaches to work their plans far more efficiently," Sabbah argued.

In 3x3, do we have a format which brings more participation into sport? Definitely. Is the new format a replacement for the traditional form? Definitely not.

Can the new format act as a solid support base in the larger scheme of things? Definitely more than an option.

So long…

S Mageshwaran from FIBA Asia
